As I have been reading through my blog dashboard this week, a lot of my fellow bloggers have put lists of gift ideas together, inspiring people to find a lasting, thoughtful gift for that "hard to buy for" person. Not to mention being thrifty while doing so! But, what do people see first is how the gift is presented, the wrapping. This, for me, sometimes, can be more delightful than the treasure inside! There are so many beautiful packaging ideas. The thought that was put into it can be part of the gift, something you can create your self, even if the item is not.
The past couple of months I have come across some super fabulous ideas, so to get in the spirit of things, here I am to share them with you! If you are anything like me, you want your gift to stand out to the person who is recieving it, and bring their style right into the gift. For me it is shabby, vintage, details. SO, as you look through, remember that changing a color or product can give a whole new look to the finished result.
This idea can really be personalized by the shape of the cutout. I really like the thought of using newspaper to stencil onto! And, if you could bring yourself to do it, an old book?
This is such a great idea! Being both a sewer and crafter, this is right up my ally! I will be using this for some of my smaller gifts for sure! Love this! There are so many shapes you could make!
This is also a neat idea. Make sure to keep your eyes out for tattered maps while thrifting this season!
Perfect for Dads and brothers! :)
How do you make your gifts bring delight to the eye ?
Which idea do you like the best ?
Do you think you will use them this Christmas season ?
P.S. Oh, happy fiftieth post! We are so blessed by all of you! We have made many kindred spirits among
you! :) Hoping to bring many more posts your way, filled with the joy of Christ!
